Ubuntu

The 10.10 version of Ubuntu, a free operative system is to be released in the next few days. French Wikinews contributor Savant-fou (Baptiste) has interviewed Fabrice, an Ubuntu's MOTU (Master Of The Universe), member of the development team of the operative system.

Interview

Baptiste: When did you first become interested in computers? Since when do you program?

Fabrice: About 12-13 years ago. My first computer was an MO6, and I started to get interested in programming at that age. I wrote my first program (a game) in Basic, and it was so big that it used two tapes (yes, yes, tapes). I am 39, so it's been quite a while since I became interested in computers. I was, and continue to be an autodidact.

Baptiste: What is your profession?

Fabrice: I am Product Manager in a computing store, at Madrid, so I am still in the same field, even when I have not written a line of code for long in my job! My participation in the development of Ubuntu consists of mantaining the "technical" side.

Baptiste: You participate in the development of Ubuntu as "MOTU". What is it?
